Pond dipping at Newport Wetlands

Discover the underwater life at Newport Wetlands in the summer holidays. See what creatures you can catch and have our staff and volunteers on-hand to help you identify your finds. You will have exclusive access to our pond dipping area, your own equipment and Identification charts to help you discover and learn about the creatures you catch. Will you catch a speedy water boatman? Or will it be the feisty water scorpion? The challenge is to find the famous three-spined stickleback!
